While this castle is overshadowed by Neuschawanstein, it is worth going inside and seeing the exquisite rooms and truly beautiful castle!
I think I enjoyed this more than Neuschwanstein, which came as a surprise to me. (Newschwanstein was never complete though & kind of kooky decor...) It was far less crowded, as most people in town are on a day trip and choose to see the other castle. Lovely decorations and the tour guide was very good with interesting facts to... More
Skip the line and go to the reservation line if this is the only one you are visiting. Otherwise, if you are going to Neuschwanstein, make sure you call and reserve a ticket. No waiting in line if you do that.
